Expanding KP’s high-quality care to downtown
For the first time in Kaiser Permanente's nearly 50 years in the Sacramento region, we will expand our high-quality care to downtown Sacramento where many of our members live, work, and play. kaiser Permanente is in contract to purchase a six-story, 195,000-square-foot building at 501 J Street with a 505-space parking garage. We will use the additional space to best meet the needs of our growing membership and are still evaluating services to be located there. At this time, projected construction and completion dates are not set.
We chose this site because it is centrally located and has convenient proximity to Interstate 5 and other freeways. Expanding to downtown allows us to improve geographic access for many of our members, especially the thousands of state, county, and city employees who are Kaiser Permanente members.
We are increasingly being seen as the model for health care in the Sacramento area and the nation. Just as we are transforming care, we are proud to now be a part of the transformation of downtown Sacramento. It’s a great way to mark a half-century of providing outstanding care to the region.
